People who use Instagram always want more followers. If they are new, they want more followers, and if they have been using Instagram for years, they want more followers.
People always want to be popular in real life, and that’s the same on their social media. Instagram is no different and people who have a large following can make a living from their social media.
If you are new to Instagram then it can be a bit intimidating, but you should take your time and have fun. Don’t worry if you only have followers who are your friends in real life. The more you post, the more followers you will get.
If you want to be popular on Instagram and you want to keep your following, then you have to post frequently. If you want to take it a little more seriously, stick to a posting calendar, so your followers know when the new image will be updated.
If you have a downtime and don’t post for a while, then your followers can remove you in favor of following someone else. Your friends in real life won’t do this to you, but if you have followers who follow you because they have similar interests, they may stop following you.
When you first upload to Instagram, you probably don’t know how to use tags. This is something that is true for everyone, when they started using the website or the app. So don’t think you are alone here.
Even the most popular Instagram user has a first image and if you check their history to find it, it probably won’t have any tags.
However, you must quickly learn that you must tag your images if you want to make more friends. If you don’t tag, the image will only be visible to users who are already on your friends list.
This is because there is nothing attached to the image for it to be searchable. For example, if you tag your image with the word “soccer”, when other users search for “soccer”, the image will appear in search results.
This is how you get more followers. When someone finds your images and is interested in whatever tag it is, they will add you to their friends list because they are interested in seeing more.
It is possible to find more followers using your other social media platforms. If you link social networks like Twitter and Facebook to your Instagram, the image will be shared there when you post to Instagram.
This way you will get more followers because your labels will also work on those social networks. So, you will get followers with similar interests. You could even attract non-Instagram followers. Your post can be the post that gets them to join Instagram.
You can also get more followers by looking at hashtag trends and posting an image that suits that trend. For example, if you know that a lot of people post POTD (picture of the day) tags, you can post a picture about that similar trend.
It could be anything you want and a lot of people will see it. Once you have posted with this tag multiple times, you will notice that people who like the photos of the day will start adding you as their friend. Your exposure will have doubled.
